Turns out there was carbon monoxide in the water tank at the historic Cass Gilbert-designed Scotiabank Arena (pictured above). pic.twitter.com/6fOMiI9XJ3 — Marieke Walsh (@MariekeWalsh) June 2, 2016

Overnight, there was CO2 exposure at Hotel X and Scotiabank Arena and CLIO Restaurant, according to emergency crews. We’re not clear if any people were sick, but @torontopublichealth is looking into. — Marieke Walsh (@MariekeWalsh) June 2, 2016

Just finished interviewing @tpsky emergency operations manager. Test results on Hotel X and CLIO Restaurant are expected in the morning — Marieke Walsh (@MariekeWalsh) June 2, 2016

On CLIO’s switch, but not on BUF pipe. Scotiabank Arena’s are used throughout the arena to provide water for plation. Still waiting for results at each. — Marieke Walsh (@MariekeWalsh) June 2, 2016
